A HUGE thank you to Rachel Strate, indefatigable fund raiser extraordinaire.

Tuesday, May 1st, 2007

Please help support the Salt Lake Climbers Alliance at the 3rd annual climbing competition and party. Climb in the comp, if only to try and burn off your friends on the pink taped problem. Then stay for the party and satisfy your post-comp hunger and thirst. Rumor has it MC will be showing some exclusive footage as well. If you appreciate fixed anchors that stay in the rock, and having local areas open to climbing, support the SLCA by attending a fun event.

Date: Thursday, May 3rd
Time: Comp 4:30-7:30, Party at 7:00
Where: The Front Climbing Club, 1450 South 400 West, SLC UT
